Lower percentage indicates better performance.
The UK national average for all cardiac surgery units for 2013-14 was 0.6% (data source: Central Cardiac Audit Database). All patients who have a post-operative stroke at UHB are reviewed by a member of the stroke team, and appropriate investigations are carried out where required.
Why is this indicator important?
Strokes are known to occur following first-time, isolated CABG surgery in around 1-3% of all patients which can increase overall length of stay and affect survival.
How do we measure this indicator?
Percentage of first-time, isolated CABG patients who had a post-operative stroke before discharge.
